Though I am out of college, I still find that learning and discovering are forces that both fascinate and drive the direction of my life. As a researcher for documentary film, I have made learning about new things the center of my professional life. I am attracted to tutoring for many of the same reasons; I love witnessing the magic of the "click" of understanding that washes over a student who had previously struggled with a difficult concept and find it deeply fulfilling.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I see myself as more of a facilitator of learning. I wish to help my students with helpful tools and techniques and gently guide them. In this way, I endeavor to help them hone their skills and trust their own instincts so that they can continue to tackle challenges without my help.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Initially, I try to establish what the student's outside interests and hobbies are. Hopefully, this creates a bit of bonhomie, but also allows me to see if I can connect the course material to the student's interests outside of the classroom. Then, tutoring sessions become less of an onerous task for a student.
